Building accountable governance, economic enterprises along with corruption-free society

writing pen1
  • The Union Government has been taking action against corruption, in accordance with the law, without favoring anyone, with only the interests of the people and the country in mind.
    Myanmar has witnessed the visible and tangible results of its success in the fight against corruption, to a certain extent, in the area of preventing and combating corruption.
    We were able to establish branch offices of the Anti-Corruption Commission in the regions and states, and set up Corruption Prevention Units (CPUs) in the ministries.
    The Anti-Corruption Commission responded to 5,286 letters of advice and 2,824 complaints against corruption from the people.
    Thanks to investigations launched by the commission, more than K30.89 million and over US$4 million were returned to the government in 2018, preventing losses to the public exchequer.
    Besides, the commission hired a third party to carry out a survey on corruption cases in the whole country, except Chin State, from October to December in 2018. Through the survey, the commission has found that it needs to step up its efforts to fight corruption in 2019.
    Hence, steps are being taken to draft a bill for protecting citizens who inform the commission about corruption, and for drawing up the 4th law amending the Anti-Corruption Law so that severe action can be initiated against law breakers.
    Corruption Prevention Units have been formed at ministries with three duties: to scrutinize and explore corruption cases, to solve corruption-related problems, and to prevent corruption by civil servants.
    Corruption is a chronic disease which has taken deep root over many administrations, and which could push the country towards poverty.
    We would like the authorities concerned to take the initiative, together with their organizations, and to make sacrifices to change the whole system.This would be in line with the process of democratization. Only then can we build accountable governance and economic enterprises in line with democratic norms.
    We believe that there are many people who have been persistently against corruption, and they must take a leading role in fighting against it.
    It is time for them to combat the terrible system of corruption in unison with the people.
    By changing ourselves, we must endeavour to change our organizations and raise the prestige of our community, while promoting efforts at improving governance and economic conditions of the State.
